We serve an awesome God. He said He will never fail, forsake, or leave us. We have to remember that in both the best and worst of times.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Don’t be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4-7

Faith Talk Podcast Episode 4: Are You Taking Care of Your Temple?

Growing up, many of us witnessed our mothers, aunts, and grandmothers sacrificing their health and overall well-being in order to take care of others. It was seen as a noble and Christian trait to be self-sacrificing.

Yet, the Bible tells us the body is a temple that requires love, honor, respect, and admiration.

In addition, research has shown we are better at serving others when we make sure to take care of ourselves as well.

With that in mind, Sara, Judy, Tabatha, Carrie, and Thema talk self-care and how it contributes to our faith and a higher quality of life.

This episode of Faith Talk explores the following:

1. As Christian women, we are often taught the significance of service and sacrifice. At what point did you learn about the importance of self-care in your walk with Christ?

2. What factors tend to prevent or interrupt your practice of self-care?

3. Is there biblical support for self-care?

4. Action Step: What can you do to implement a sustainable practice of self-care in your life?
